Whenever users drag issues within the board area or add new ones from the Unplanned Issues sidebar, all feature swimlanes at their disposal will be automatically displayed, ensuring comprehensive planning capabilities.

Bugfixes

  • Dependency lines not drawn correctly in Roadmap Boards: Fixed a bug where dependency lines in Roadmap Board have either been displayed incorrectly or not at all.

  • Planned Capacity for other Teams of the same ART not displayed in Team Board: Fixed a bug where planned Capacity for Teams of the same ART has not been displayed correctly in Team Boards.

 

November 30, 2023

New Features

  • Configure Project Member in Agile Hive: Agile Hive Administrators can now set up project members within the Agile Hive Project Settings. This enables them to assign specific roles to each project member and arrange them in a desired order. These project members will later be displayed on the Reports Dashboard, which is scheduled for release later this year. Make the most of the time leading up to the release by configuring project members for your SAFe® projects in preparation.
    Important: Configuring project members in Agile Hive does not impact any project-related settings in Jira. Also, it does not assign Jira permissions or assign project roles to Jira users.

  • Issue Type Mapping for Projects on Portfolio Level: Agile Hive now offers Issue Type Mapping for projects on Portfolio level. Agile Hive Administrators can now configure mappings between Jira issue types and the functionalities provided by the application (e.g., Milestones, Strategic Themes). You have the option to either employ the predefined issue types that come with Agile Hive for a quick start or configure mappings for your own issue types on a per-project basis (remember to include the necessary Custom Fields in the project's Jira Screens).

Bugfixes

  • Setting Capacity for Iterations in Team Planning Board: Fixed a bug where it was no longer possible to set iteration capacity through Team Boards.

 

November 22, 2023

New Features

  • Display Milestones in Roadmap Boards: You can now display Milestones at the ART, Solution Train, and Portfolio levels on the Roadmap Board. Each Milestone issue within the Jira project will feature a small icon in the top row of the roadmap section, signaling the presence of one or more Milestones planned for a specific date. To include Milestones on the Roadmap Board, simply configure the Milestone Date Custom Field for Milestone issues. Hover over a Milestone icon to view additional details, and click on a Milestone icon to display the complete issue.

  • Conveniently perform JQL search for all child issues with one click: It is essential to monitor the progress of all child issues associated with a Portfolio Epic, Capability, or ART Feature to stay informed about the overall status. Agile Hive has introduced a new feature in the Agile Hive issue context in the right-hand sidebar of Jira’s issue view that simplifies the process of finding all child issues related to a specific task. This feature provides the issue ID along with a concise link to Jira's issue browser. The issue search is pre-configured with a JQL query to display all child issues for the selected issue.
    This marks the initial implementation of a more user-friendly search experience, with further enhancements planned for the future. If you have specific use cases or requirements related to managing child issues for a particular task, please don't hesitate to contact us via our Service Desk - Thank you!

Bugfixes

  • ‘Parent Issue’ field did not update after editing in Issue List: Fixed a bug where the 'Parent Issue' field was not being updated correctly when modifying the parent link for an issue using Jira's issue modal overlay within the Issue List of Agile Hive.

 

November 16, 2023

In this version, new Custom Fields have been added to Agile Hive and some of the predefined Jira Screens. It is recommended that a Jira Administrator reviews the Agile Hive components in Jira’s app administration and recreates any missing statuses, workflows, screens, issue link types, Custom Fields, and other schemes. Also, the new Custom Fields should be reviewed and added manually to the respective Screens to make sure all Agile Hive functionality is available to the users of your site.

New Features

  • Filter Team Boards using JQL: You can customize the Team Planning Board by applying a JQL filter now as well, just similar to Roadmap Boards. This filter query will be used to narrow down the displayed issues on the board, helping you focus on the relevant tasks and eliminating any unnecessary information that could be distracting for you and your team.
    You have the flexibility to use various JQL parameters (excluding ORDER BY) in combination to filter the board. Simply enter your filter criteria and press 'Enter' to apply the filter. To clear the filter, just erase the input field and press 'Enter' again.

  • Custom Fields for WSJF Prioritization: Agile Hive has introduced dedicated Custom Fields designed for the storage of WSJF-specific information such as Job Size, User Business Value, RROE (Risk Reduction / Opportunity Enablement), and Time Criticality. Using this information, WSJF prioritization value is being calculated for each affected issue in real-time. You can access WSJF-specific details within the 'Agile Hive' issue context, conveniently located in the right-hand sidebar of Jira's issue detail view.
    WSJF is available for all issues on ART, Solution Train, and Portfolio level except for issues of type Objective, Risk, and Milestone.

  • Custom Field for Milestones: Agile Hive has introduced another dedicated Custom Field designed for the storage of Milestone Date for issues of type Milestone. Using this information, Agile Hive will be able to display Milestones in Roadmap Boards for projects on ART, Solution Train, and Portfolio level.
    This Custom Field will serve as the cornerstone for Reports that will be integrated into Agile Hive later this year.

Improvements

  • Combined Date Picker for Planned Start and End Date: In order to set the Planned Start Date and Planned End Date for issues at the ART, Solution Train, and Portfolio levels, a combined Date Picker has been introduced. This tool allows you to select a date range instead of having to input two separate dates, enhancing the ease of adding issues to Roadmap Boards. You can access this new Date Picker within Jira's issue detail view by navigating to the 'Agile Hive' issue context in the right-hand sidebar.

  • Save and Share JQL Board Filters via URL: Filter queries set for Roadmap and Team Boards in JQL are now automatically appended to the current URL in your web browser. This convenient feature allows you to create bookmarks for filtered boards or share them effortlessly with your colleagues. To do this, just copy the URL from your browser's address bar after applying a JQL filter to a board, and you can either share it with others or save it for later use. Agile Hive will instantly take you to the filtered view when you access the link.

 

November 9, 2023

New Features

  • Filter Roadmap Boards using JQL: You can customize the Roadmap Board by applying a JQL filter query to ART, Large Solution, and Portfolio projects. This filter query will be used to narrow down the displayed issues on the board, helping you focus on the relevant tasks and eliminating any unnecessary information that could be distracting for you and your colleagues.
    You have the flexibility to use various JQL parameters (excluding ORDER BY) in combination to filter the board. Simply enter your filter criteria and press 'Enter' to apply the filter. To clear the filter, just erase the input field and press 'Enter' again.

 

November 1, 2023

New Features

  • Edit Roadmap Start Date and End Date on ART, Large Solution, and Portfolio level: From within Jira's issue detail view, you have the capability to directly modify the Start Date and End Date of issues planned on the Roadmap Board for projects at the ART, Large Solution, and Portfolio levels. Conveniently located in the right-hand sidebar, you can access information related to roadmap issues through the 'Agile Hive' issue context.

  • Issue Link Type Mapping for Risk and Objectives: Agile Hive Administrators now have the capability to establish Jira Issue Type mappings. This allows for linking Risks with the issues addressing those risks and connecting Objectives with the issues that contribute to them.
    The Jira Issue Link Types mapped here will be used to identify and display information in Agile Hive Reports, coming to the product later this year.

 

October 27, 2023

New Features

  • Custom Fields for PI Risks: Agile Hive has introduced dedicated Custom Fields designed for the storage of Risk-specific details such as Probability, Impact, Residual Probability, and Residual Impact. Using this information, Exposure and Residual Exposure are dynamically computed for each individual Risk in real-time. You can access specific risk-related details within the 'Agile Hive' issue context, conveniently located in the right-hand sidebar of Jira's issue detail view.
    These Custom Fields will serve as the cornerstone for Reports that will be integrated into Agile Hive later this year.

Bugfixes

  • Date information for Iterations in Team Planning Boards off by one day: Fixed a bug where date information for Iterations on Agile Hive's Team Planning Board was inaccurately displayed for certain users, with a discrepancy of one day, influenced by their system's time zone settings.

  • Saving of Agile Hive Project Settings: Fixed a bug where Agile Hive Project Settings, such as Issuetype Mappings, were not being saved correctly.

 

September 28, 2023

In this version, new Custom Fields have been added to Agile Hive and some of the predefined Jira Screens. It is recommended that a Jira Administrator reviews the Agile Hive components in Jira’s app administration and recreates any missing statuses, workflows, screens, issue link types, Custom Fields, and other schemes. Also, the new Custom Fields should be reviewed and added manually to the respective Screens to make sure all Agile Hive functionality is available to the users of your site.

New Features

  • Custom Field ‘Assigned PIs’ for Objectives and Risks: We have added a new Custom Field ‘Assigned PIs’ in Agile Hive that allows users to associate issues categorized as Objectives and Risks with one or more Planning Intervals (PIs), up to a maximum of five. This feature assists Teams, Agile Release Trains (ARTs), and Solution Trains in their Objective planning for the upcoming PI, while also aiding in the identification and tracking of potential Risks throughout the process.
    This Custom Field will serve as one of the cornerstone for visualizing PI Objectives and Risks within Reports that will be integrated into Agile Hive later this year.

Improvements

  • Hierarchical links for PI Objectives across Teams, ARTs, and Solution Trains: Hierarchically linking one Objective to another has become simpler than before. To ensure that the PI Objective hierarchy is set up correctly, it's now a requirement that issues categorized as Objectives within each project can only be linked to other issues of the same type using the SAFe® Hierarchy panel.

 

September 21, 2023

New Features

  • Skip Large Solution layer when hierarchically linking issues: Within Full SAFe® project hierarchies, it is now possible to establish direct hierarchical links between issues at the ART and Portfolio levels without the requirement of including an issue at the Large Solution layer. This approach offers a more precise representation of the interconnectedness of individual work components within the big picture.

Improvements

  • More robust Issuetype mapping in project settings: When configuring issuetype mappings for Agile Hive functionality in project settings, you will now be presented with only those issuetypes that correspond to the scheme assigned to the current project. This enhances the reliability of setting up issuetype mappings and ensures that Agile Hive Administrators cannot establish mappings with issuetypes that are not accessible within a particular project.

 

September 15, 2023

In this version, new Custom Fields have been added to Agile Hive and some of the predefined Jira Screens. It is recommended that a Jira Administrator reviews the Agile Hive components in Jira’s app administration and recreates any missing statuses, workflows, screens, issue link types, and other schemes. Also, the new Custom Fields should be reviewed and added manually to the respective Screens.

New Features

  • Custom Fields for Objectives: Agile Hive has introduced dedicated Custom Fields designed for the storage of Objective-specific details such as Planned Business Value, Actual Business Value, and the status of an Objective being committed or not.
    These Custom Fields will serve as the cornerstone for Reports that will be integrated into Agile Hive later this year.

  • Project-specific settings: Agile Hive Administrators now have access to a new navigation entry called ‘Project Settings' for each project. Within this section, there’s all project-specific configurations related to Agile Hive functionality. Currently, the only available settings tab is for Issuetype mapping, but additional tabs will be introduced gradually.

  • Project-specific issuetype mapping: Agile Hive offers dedicated features tailored to specific issue types like Risks and Objectives. To ensure Agile Hive identifies the appropriate issue type as a basis for delivering these features, Agile Hive Administrators can now configure mappings between Jira issue types and the functionalities provided by the application. You have the option to either employ the predefined issue types that come with Agile Hive for a quick start or configure mappings for your own issue types on a per-project basis (remember to include the necessary Custom Fields in the project's Jira Screens).

Improvements

  • Exclude Risks, Objectives, and Milestones from Roadmap and Team boards: Issues mapped as Risk, Objective, and Milestone for a project will no longer appear on the Roadmap and Team boards because they are not directly planned within the timeline. Instead, we will introduce a Custom Field for issues of these types with the next app release, allowing them to be assigned to a specific Planning Interval (PI).
    For the time being, you can utilize Jira Query Language (JQL) to retrieve a list of all issues assigned to a particular PI. In the future, there will be a dedicated section in the project's Reports for Objectives, Risks, and Milestones, providing a comprehensive overview.
    This Custom Field will serve as the cornerstone for Reports that will be integrated into Agile Hive later this year.

Bugfixes

  • Initial creation of predefined Jira entities: Over the last few weeks, we received a growing number of support requests related to creating Jira entities like Issuetypes, Screens, Statuses, and Workflows that come with Agile Hive. We have been working to gradually improve the initial setup process and again have fixed some more issues that could have negatively impacted your experience, especially when setting up Statuses and Issuetypes.
    If you still receive errors during the initial setup, please contact our support via https://seibert.biz/ahc-help, Thank you!

 

August 28, 2023

In this version, certain component names have been revised to align with SAFe® 6.0 terminology as well as freshly introduced Workflow Schemes, Issue Type Screen Schemes, and Issue Link Types. It is recommended that a Jira Administrator reviews the Agile Hive components in Jira’s app administration and recreates any missing statuses, workflows, screens, issue link types, and other schemes.

  • Automatically add app information to new helpdesk inquiries: Upon creating a new helpdesk inquiry from the 'Help' menu in Agile Hive, certain technical information is now automatically included in the inquiry. This information comprises the short hash, commit date, and version tag.
    It's important to note that no personal data and no issue data is shared through this process.

Bugfixes

  • Server error when dragging issues in Team boards: Fixed a rare bug that caused a server error when dragging an issue card on a Team board for an extended period of time.

  • Visibility of ‘Help’ button in light mode: Fixed a display problem with the 'Help' button in light theme, which arose after implementing support for the dark theme.

  • Planned duration for issues in Roadmap boards: Fixed a bug where issues added to the Roadmap board initially had a duration of 8 days instead of 7, causing them to deviate from the drag & drop placeholder indication.

  • Sidebar behavior in Team board empty state: Fixed a bug on Team boards where the 'Unplanned Issues' sidebar failed to display relevant issue information when no PI had been created for that team. The sidebar is now completely disabled as long as there is no PI available for a team to make users aware that planning is only feasible after a PI has been created on the Large Solution or ART level.

 


July 20, 2023

Improvements

  • Open Jira project: With this update, accessing Jira projects from Agile Hive has become more convenient than ever. A new shortcut icon has been introduced right next to the project name in the project navigation. Now, with just a single click on the icon, you can instantly open your project in Jira.

With this fix, the issue removal process now functions smoothly, ensuring a more seamless experience while managing your Team board and sprint-related tasks.

 


July 13, 2023

New Features

  • Display cross-team dependencies within your team’s ART: In PI Planning, it is important to consider dependencies not only within your own team but also with other teams that are working on the same features within the ART. You have the ability to view other teams' planning progress directly on the Team board, which allows you to identify critical dependencies and make adjustments to your team's planning accordingly. The board represents each team with its own dedicated swimlane, and all teams, except the one that has ownership of the board, are in read-only mode

  • Dark Mode support: With this update, we have introduced initial support for Jira's new Dark Mode feature (You can change the Jira theme in the user menu located at the top right corner of the screen). Please note that while we continue to enhance dark mode compatibility in upcoming versions, certain interface elements may not fully adapt to the dark theme yet.

July 07, 2023

In this version, certain component names have been revised to align with SAFe® 6.0 terminology. It is recommended that a Jira Administrator reviews the Agile Hive settings in Jira’s app administration and recreates any missing statuses, workflows, and screens.

New Features

  • Parent issue indicator in Roadmap and Team Boards: In order to more effectively keep track of hierarchical relationships for issues in Roadmap and Team Boards, we implemented a new colored lozenge that indicates whether an issue is already linked with a parent issue. This addition allows users to concentrate on specific topics during planning. Clicking on the lozenge opens up the parent issue in a new browser tab.

Improvements

  • Empty state harmonization: The appearance of the empty state in the 'Groups' settings of Agile Hive Jira Administration has been updated to align with the empty states found elsewhere in the application.

  • SAFe® 6.0 wording updates: We have made updates to the naming of certain components, such as statuses, workflows, and screens, to ensure alignment with the latest SAFe® 6.0 terminology.

 


June 16, 2023

Bugfixes

  • Create Workflows shipped with Agile Hive: Fixed a bug where Jira Admins encountered difficulties when attempting to create workflows shipped with Agile Hive, particularly when certain default statuses in Jira (such as "ToDo") were absent from the system. Agile Hive now includes a check for Jira's default statuses and automatically sets them up if they are not already present.
